Combining a comfortable wide-angle design with an ultra-fast maximum aperture, the 16mm f/1.4 DC DN is part of Sigma's Contemporary series of lenses and designed for use with APS-C-format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens is adept at working in low-light conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for selective focus control. The optical design makes use of several low dispersion and aspherical elements, which control color fringing and various aberrations in order to provide high sharpness and clarity throughout the aperture range. Individual elements also feature a super multilayered coating to suppress flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions. Benefitting the optical assets, this lens also sports a stepping AF motor for quick, quiet, and smooth focusing performance that suits both still photography as well as video applications.

Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Reviews
Amazing Lens at an Amazing Price
I use the Lumix G9 and have a wide variety of lenses in my collection. After hearing about Sigma, I decided to try out their products. I purchased the 16mm M4/3 lens. This lens does not disappoint. The pictures that come out of this lens are very sharp. I have also used this lens at night and the pictures always came out very nicely. The aperture goes all the way to a bright F1.4. The lens is has a premium feel to it. The focusing ring is very smooth and the materials are very nice to the touch. For the price of only $399.99, this is a steal.
It's for Aps-c sensor
This lens on Leica SL2 functions as an APS-C lens and the camera automatically realizes it is cropped. Thus not 16 mm on full frame sensor
Love this lens. Great for low light!
Love this lens. Great for low light!
Works well with BMPCC 4k
The f/1.4 works well in my office as I record video. I also have the APS-C Sensor version.
Great, if your get a good one
This lens is quite sharp, focus is fast, weight is to be expected on a f/1.4 wide angle. And the price is a steal. I have a long (40+) year history with Sigma products and one thing that hasn't gotten much better is their quality control and consistency. The first one of these lenses I got could not focus on anything. It thought it was in focus, but not even close. The second lens nailed focus. It's a tiny bit less sharp in one corner, but only on close examination. It's worth noting I'm using a m43 camera; on a APS camera, a soft corner would be more noticeable since you're using more of the image circle on the larger APS sensor. All in all, I recommend this lens, but do check yours. It's Sigma, not Zeiss, so trust but verify.
Great on Sony FX30
The Sigma 16mm f/1.4 a perfect companion to my Sony FX30. Very nice for the wide cam on a two camera interview. Lovely to be wide, and still be able to soften the background. Also nice that it has the same 67mm front threads as my Tamron 17-70 f2.8 and Tamron 11-20 f2.8. Sony's fabulous autofocus works flawlessly. Not 5 stars because I have only had it two weeks, and have not tested for image quality ... however looks great at first glance.
We arrived safely. ^^
Wow! I received it well without any bad manners. I opened it, but I think I need to use it more. The product works well without any problems. I can't wait to see the results. Ha ha.
